Chicken Italia Sausages with Red Onion & Capers on Toasted Focaccia

HECK Chicken Italia sausages are delicious on their own (and low fat!) but pair them with a few ingredients and hey presto, bellissimo on a plate! Serves four.


3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 Pack of Heck Chicken Italia sausages
2 red onions, peeled and sliced
2 sprigs rosemary, roughly broken up
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp sherry vinegar
2 tbsp capers
2 plum tomatoes, quartered
4 slices focaccia
2 dried chillies
Freshly ground black pepper taste


Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat, add the sausages and cook for 3 – 4 minutes. Next add the onions and rosemary to the same pan and sprinkle over the sugar. Fry for about 10 minutes, turning occasionally until the sausages are golden brown.

Next add the sherry vinegar, capers, tomatoes, chillies and a dash of water to keep everything moist and cook for a further 10 minutes with a lid on, until the sausages are cooked through. The onions and tomatoes also need to be soft.

Preheat a griddle pan and toast the focaccia for 1 – 2 minutes on each side. Serve 2 sausages on each slice of toast and a good helping of the onion and tomato sauce. Remove the chillies if desired then grind over some black pepper and enjoy!
